    Recent projects with new trailer

    I actually thought the same thing at first, I had to go back and look at the picture again, it was an optical illusion.

    Saplings and brush around pond banks. Suggestions?

    It has quickly become one of my favorite implements out of a dozen or so I've got. I can use it to move small boulders without having to put the rock grapple on as well.

    Saplings and brush around pond banks. Suggestions?

    I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned the solution that I finally came up with. After years of clearing with loppers and chainsaws, not only around the pond, but along our drives and private roads, only to have them grow back twice as fas and bushier, I went and got myself a tree puller. It...

    Anyone figured out a way to see

    What do you have for a tractor? Most modern tractors for the last 10-20 years have an indicator of one type or another that runs from the curl pivot point and up the loader arm as a visual indicator. some are even adjustable for different implements such as the one on my Massey 1755

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    Ok, and if you rely on that as fact you would guess my age as 20-25 so that would make me less credible? When in actuality I'm pushing 50. Not going to argue. But I know what I know.

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    Not going to argue or go down a rabbit hole, but googling does not always give you accurate facts. The chicken pox vaccine had been developed before I was even born. (Early 1960's) And I'm a grandfather. I WAS administered the chicken pox vaccine in Vancouver Washington when I was in grade...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    I apologize if I insulted anybody, that was not my intent. Since I retired from the Military many years ago and no longer had to have mandatory flu shots, I've never had one since and have never been sick again since as well. I just don't like putting 'stuff' in my body because I'm told that's...

    Did the Covid shot make you cranky?

    NOPE! No side effects at all, because im not dumb enough to get it. Even though im eligible for multiple reasons. If you do your research, it doesn't even meet the criteria for a vaccine.

    Valve stem guard

    I love my Massey! Was the blue one a Ford NewHolland like I had in the old days or the LS like my neighbor has that is falling apart?

    Chain storage

    If your pulling logs, look into using cable log chokers. They are much lighter, and easier to store. And you can rig multiples to one clevis. And you can 'thread them' under a log on the ground, unlike a chain.

    Can anyone identify this hydraulic hand pump?

    If it were me, for the price I would just replace it with one of these units, plug and play. Check this out at Amazon Mophorn 12 Volt DC Hydraulic Power Unit Single Acting Hydraulic Dump Trailer Pump Plastic Poly Reservoir(12VDC Single Action Powering Unit, SAE #6 Ports, 3200 PSI, 20 Quart...
